                        ARTISTRY OF CAKE MAKING & DECORATION
                        with Roxanne Floquet
                        Baking a cake appears to be a simple process.... until you see one of Roxanne’s incredible creations
                        and you swiftly realise the artistry and precision required to create one of her masterpieces.

                        We are delighted and very excited to announce that Roxanne is coming to African Relish to share
                        her extraordinary skill and creative flair and to give us a master class in cake making and decoration.
                        You dare not miss this opportunity. Roxanne was trained at Silwood Cookery School in Cape Town.
                        She worked for Peggy Porschen , one of the UK’s finest cake makers and it was there that she was
                        able to enhance her skills in the field of cake design and decorating. Looking to further hone her
                        pastry making skills, she ventured away from the decorative side of cake design to explore a more
                        broad approach to pastry at world renowned Yauatcha restaurant in Soho, London, where the pastry
                        chef, Stephan Sucheta, showcases one of the most impressive pastry displays in the world. It was
                        here where she began learning the intricacies of pastry as a science and started Roxanne Floquet
                        Cake Design, now one of the most sought after bespoke cake producers for that special occasion
